I needed a special thank you card to send to my parents, and I wanted to make something with a fun fold or unique design. This design seemed to fit the bill. A lot of time and thought was spent on this card and, surprisingly, I didn't have to make a second one which is normally the case when I try something new or different. The only problem was that--after all was said and done and I finished being pleased with myself--I realized that I had nowhere to enclose the check that needed to accompany the card. And that's where the handy dandy circle clip came to the rescue. I've had those clips for YEARS, and it was quite nice to finally have a use for one of them after all the times that I have moved them from one jar to another and to a container and to a box and back to a jar and so forth and so on during many re-organizations in my stamp room.
I haven't had time yet to make specific notes about this card design, but I hope to do that soon. It's really a fun one in that the red strip with the white dots is attached to the front and back panels, but it has the necessary folds to be bent--or straight--when opened. There are a lot of design options with this card, but I mostly left that task to the patterned paper that I chose! I won't lie . . . this card is a bit bulky, but sometimes that just doesn't matter when something special is needed for special people.
